Story Highlights XL1 is a spaceship-like, ultra-high-mgp, plug-in, diesel-electric hybrid VW used exotic, but obtainable materials and technologies to craft a high-mileage vehicle It couldn’t meet U.S. safety rules and needed changes in German rules to be on the road there A car company without a new model to promote is a sad thing. Sales fall. Morale slips. Dealers grumble. Volkswagen’s in that limbo.

Volkswagen XL1 pictures and handson Pocketlint — Volkswagen XL1

Volkswagen XL1 pictures and hands-on And now for something completely different. Having brought you the skinny on the supercar wars going on between Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren — with a not exactly attainable Rolls Royce thrown in for good measure — we’ve saved the best thing from the Geneva motorshow until last. While that might sound perverse based on the picture above, for our money the Volkswagen XL1 is the closest thing we’ve seen to the future of the car and so has got us rather excited. If you grew up as a kid with the likes of the Jetsons and the notion that flying hover boards might one day help us to wiz around, we reckon you’ll like the XL1. It’s ...

NASA’s Z-2 suit is the newest prototype in its next-generation spacesuit platform, the Z-series.

Volkswagen XL1 138MPG Diesel PlugIn Hybrid Drive Report Yahoo Autos — Volkswagen XL1

Volkswagen XL1 138-MPG Diesel Plug-In Hybrid: Drive Report We didn’t expect the Volkswagen XL1 to be as much fun to drive as it is. Which makes it doubly a shame that Volkswagen won’t be selling its radically efficient, two-seat, plug-in diesel hybrid XL1 model in North America. At a price of € 111,000 (roughly $153,000), the 250 XL1 cars that Volkswagen will build and sell in Europe are akin to a pricier modern-day analogue to the original 2000 Honda Insight. Like that pioneering hybrid, the two-seat XL1 is supremely aerodynamic (its drag coefficient is 0.19), very light (1,750 pounds), and uses a tiny engine paired with an electric motor. Volkswagen XL1 (European model), ...

Volkswagen XL1 driving the technology SAE International — Volkswagen XL1

Volkswagen XL1: driving the technology Volkswagen’s XL1 can be driven quickly and confidently in the wet. Looking backwards in the forward-looking VW XL1 involves cameras instead of aerodynamically intrusive exterior mirrors. There is no central interior mirror. Both overall vehicle performance and individual aspects of powertrain information are available to the driver of the VW XL1. Staggered location of the seats provides added elbow room in the VW XL1. The carbon fiber seat shells offer good location and comfort. “We have seen a best average fuel consumption in hybrid mode of 0.7 L/100 km from the car,” said Volkswagen Technical Specialist Steve Harris, suggesting that this ...

2014 Volkswagen XL1 First Drive – Review – Car and Driver — Volkswagen XL1

2014 Volkswagen XL1 Feather Weight: With its ostrich-winged doors, Volkswagen’s new mileage champ, the XL1, is the Veyron of hybrids. From the July 2013 Issue of Car and Driver If you drove a Volkswagen XL1, you#x2019;d be unlikely to encounter anything like it coming the other way. That#x2019;s because VW plans to build only 250 copies of#x2009;its 283-mpg hyper-hybrid, and also because GM long ago crushed most of its EV1s, from which the XL1 looks almost entirely plagiarized. Here#x2019;s another example of VW chairman Ferdinand Pi#xEB;ch going to extremes#x2014;in this case, to show his many critics in the German Green Party where to stick it. The XL1 is 1800 pounds of carbon ...

Volkswagen-s XL1 is «the most efficient production car in the world» — Volkswagen XL1

Volkswagen claims XL1 is the most efficient German auto brand Volkswagen ‘s XL1, which it claims is the most fuel-efficient production car ever made, has been named the winner of the Transport category at Designs of the Year 2014 . Volkswagen ‘s XL1 consumes just 0.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres thanks to its aerodynamic design, low weight and hybrid diesel-electric engine. The two-seat car also makes use of innovative technologies including cameras that replace the wing mirrors to reduce its drag and consequently enable it to achieve low carbon dioxide emissions of 21 grams per kilometre. The only reason that this vehicle could be built is because the limits of what is ...

Blog Post   Driving VW-s Astonishing 200 MPG XL1   Car Talk — Volkswagen XL1

Jim Motavalli NEW YORK CITY—What’s it like to drive a car that gets approximately 200 mpg. Nice but noisy sums it up. The very aerodynamic (a CD of .19, lightweight and low-to-the-ground Volkswagen XL1, which looks like something you’d see parked at Starfleet Academy, is all about fuel economy, and it sacrifices a few things—like power windows and sound insulation—to get there. But no fossil-fuel-powered production car has ever gotten 200 mpg before, so this one is special. The diesel plug-in hybrid XL1, with 31 miles of all-electric range, is headed for the market—at an eye-popping price of $145,000. It might take, I dunno, ten thousand years to pay back your investment with just ...

Volkswagen XL1 Test Drive Review   Complex — Volkswagen XL1

Test Drive: The Volkswagen XL1 Is Modern Fantasy With Old-School Driving Appeal As far as modern rarity goes, the Volkswagen XL1 is on the same level as the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari. In fact, it’s actually even more rare than those two, as only 250 XL1s will be produced, while 499 LaFerraris will be prancing about and 375 P1s will be scouring tracks across the world. That’s why, full disclosure, when offered the chance to review one, I practically ejector-seated out of my chair and did a Super Mario jump of joy . Being in New York City, I’ve come to expect that many test drives are going to be whittled down to a drive around the block. That’s what this was. ...
